The African daisies have also started to germinate. No germination from the foxgloves or 2 trays of begonia. I read that they can take a month so that's almost up. I'll be mad if they don't germinate. At least I'll have the dragon wing begonias but I would love the others to germinate and reach adulthood because they are beautiful plants.
Do you ever try to help your seedlings? My geraniums were not germinating as quick as I wanted them too. When I watered them they were uncovered by the water. They had nicely swelled and were double their sized and a yellow color from the pearly white prior to planting. I dug a new hole and planted them again. The next day they were coming up. I try not to be too serious about seeds. I do get worried when it's no more time to start more because something failed. If a seedling is tall and I don't want it falling over and it's not damping off I plant it deeper to give the seedling more support. This year when I make the first transfer I'm going to use Dixie cups until the seedlings get larger then I'll transfer to 5 inch pots.
|I'll probably remove the top tomorrow so they don't start to stretch. I want more seeds to germinate although I do have other methods such as individually covering each cell with something dark so the others don't suffer waiting for them.|
